Americans Rising Up Against Agenda 21
There are now six communities across the nation that have taken action against Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development. The following have revoked their contracts with the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI): Starting in February, 2011, Carroll County, Maryland, where all five newly elected county commissioners, led by Richard Rothschild, voted to become the first county in the nation to end the ICLEI contract; then came Amador County, California, where the successful effort to remove ICLEI was led by the Mother Lode Tea Party; followed by a successful effort in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, led by activists Ruth Miller and Maggie Roddin; then came Edmond, Oklahoma, where activist Molly Jenkins was able to stir things up, generating 200 people to flood the city council meeting to demand action against ICLEI; Then came action by civic leaders in Las Cruces, New Mexico, as that community’s city council ended its ICLEI contract; finally, in May, in an effort led by City Councilman Roger Nutt, Spartanburg, South Carolina became the 6th community to kick out ICLEI in a vote of 6-0 by City Council (with one abstention). Meanwhile, anti-ICLEI battles are taking place in Titusville, Florida, Cleveland, Tennessee, and Charlottesville, VA (where only one more vote on the Board of Supervisors is needed to end ICLEI’s contract); and many more battles are raging across the nation. These efforts are causing shock waves across the country and we are starting to see hear nervous looks and attempts at ridicule against our efforts by ICLEI and EPA leaders. “Extremist” is their favorite attack word. Remember what Gandhi said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then we win!” Let ‘em laugh. The anti-Sustainable Development revolution has begun.
One rarely hears of it. Few elected officials raise an eyebrow. The media makes no mention of it. But power is slowly slipping away from our elected representatives. In much the same way Mao Tse-tung had his Red Guards, so the UN has its NGOs They may well be your masters of tomorrow, and you don’t even know who or what they are.
There are, in fact, two parallel, complimentary forces operating in the world, working together to advance the global Sustainable Development agenda, ultimately heading toward UN global governance. Those two forces are the UN itself and non-governmental organizations (NGOs.)
Beginning with the United Nations, the infrastructure pushing the Sustainable Development agenda is a vast, international matrix. At the top of the heap is the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP). Created in 1973 by the UN General Assembly, the UNEP is the catalyst through which the global environmental agenda is implemented. Virtually all of the international environmental programs and policy changes that have occurred globally in the past three decades are the result of UNEP efforts… [Click here to read on]
NIMBYS, BANANAS and GREENS
Prices at gas pumps are at some of the highest levels ever and rising. Americans want answers. In particular they want the names and numbers of those to blame. To answer that question perhaps they should simply consult the phone book or look in the mirror. Because the main culprits in the rising gas prices aren’t necessarily members of OPEC, but the American people who support policies that block new drilling and the building of new refineries on American soil. It’s that simple.
The real political parties in America are the NIMBYs (Not In My Back Yard) and the BANANAs (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything). These two political forces are driving the future of the nation by dictating the policy agendas of the Republicans and Democrats. Soon, the national bird will no longer be the noble eagle, but the ostrich.
Americans are becoming adolescent children who want towns to remain small, yet they themselves have children who must have schools, jobs and homes of their own. They want to build their homes in rural areas with beautiful vistas, yet complain when someone else wants to do the same thing. They argue that a neighbor’s new home has blocked their “view shed,” never considering that their home used to be someone else’s view shed or open space. Americans support programs to lock away land to keep wilderness pristine, free of human development, power lines and cell towers. Yet they want to use their cell phones and computers wherever they go. They want three car garages to house the family van, the daughter’s little bug and the husband’s sports car; but don’t blight the landscape with filling stations, refineries or power plants… [Click here to read on]
